Embedding, Sectioning &
Staining Your Tissue
30+ Years Experience.
Specializing in Whole Eye
Ophthalmic Slide Preparation.
The eyes are very special organs. Working with the brain, they
are how we obtain information and learn about the world
around us. This is why it is so unfortunate when a patient
looses an eye to any disease process. The eyes are precious
and should be treated so, especially when submitted as a
pathology specimen for diagnosis.
Ophthalmic histology techniques differ from those of normal
tissue in fixation, processing and sectioning. Most anatomical
pathology laboratories are not setup to provide these special
techniques. Nor is the personnel trained to identify disease
processes unique to eye diseases or demonstrate them on a
microscopic slide along with the pupil and optic nerve.
Excalibur Pathology specializes in ophthalmic pathology and
histological techniques. We provide services to clinicians as
well as researchers and veterinarians. Excalibur Pathology is
C.L.I.A. certified and follows GLP procedures.
Our Medical Director is Dr. Robert P. Shaver.
